Essay proposals are sought for a volume of critical essays on Robert Cormier’s fiction as part of the anticipated relaunch of Palgrave Macmillan’s New Casebook series. All essays in the volume will be new and original pieces of work.

The aim of the volume is, primarily, to “show undergraduate readers how recent debates, issues and developments in the field of children’s literature, and in modern critical theory, have affected approaches to” Cormier’s works. Essays that take a range of approaches to Cormier’s work are therefore sought.

Essays (of around 6,000 words) will be due in March 2011.

Please email a 400-500-word essay proposal and a 150-word biographical paragraph by 1 September 2010 to:
